spell check wont work on word

  GEEKSTA 18:34 08 Jan 2008

When i type in a mis-spelt word on word on purpose it will not correct it or find it (with a red line under it)

It says that its on at the bottom of the screen with the little book with a tick, which means that there are not incorrect work, but yes there are.

So how do i fix this problem??

I would run the Word/office programme again from the CD.

In Word go to Tools > Options > Spelling and Grammar tab and make sure that "Check Spelling as you type" is ticked then OK and exit

have tried that already?

OK - have you tried "Detect and Repair" under the Help menu? You may need your Office disk

  Sea Urchin 19:01 08 Jan 2008

Failing that you could try the Repair option on the disk

Check that your document is not set to "No Proofing" under the Language settings.
